MLA highlights parking savings

Local MLA Jo-Anne Dobson has highlighted the potential savings which local people could make if they pre-book their holiday parking.

Commenting following the publication of new research undertaken by the Consumer Council Mrs Dobson said: “This new research has revealed that consumers can save up to 60 per cent if they pre-book their long stay airport car parking instead of paying for it at the gate.

“This could amount to as much as a £52 saving for a fortnight’s holiday. Meaning people have more money to spend on their holiday.

“Research has shown that the cost of airport parking has been a concern for holiday makers and, I welcome the work which the Consumer Council have undertaken.

“They compared parking tariffs at the three Northern Ireland airports and found that pre-booking your car parking space delivered the best value for money.”
